Video: Pool hopping croc returns to the sea

A homeowner on Lower Matecumbe Key at mile marker 77 called the Sheriff's Office Thursday morning around 7:30 a.m. to report finding this crocodile in his swimming pool.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers responded to the property and the crocodile safely returned to the ocean on its own. 

The croc is estimated to be about 8 feet long.
